Courageous talks on diversity and climate change

2016 Triratna Buddhist Order Combined International Convention


Revisiting Sangharakshita’s classic talk ‘The Nucleus of a New Society’ from the 1970s, four members of the Triratna Buddhist Order offer bold, challenging, perspectives of what it could be to engage anew with his radical vision of a new kind of society.

Through the twin lenses of diversity and climate change, we hear questioning voices and affirming notions of community-based and personal Dharma practice in a suffering world. An invitation to examine our own perspectives and biases is both essential and potentially liberating.
